Bud Norris, Angels

Unlike the first three players mentioned, Norris wasn’t quite beloved by the Baltimore faithful when his Orioles’ tenure ended. He was carrying an unsightly 7.06 ERA and toiling in long relief when the club released him in 2015. He kicked around with three more teams by the end of 2016 and his career appeared to be on its last legs.

In 2017, though, Norris has found new life in an unexpected role. After cracking the Angels’ Opening Day bullpen, Norris soon found himself in the closer’s role after the club’s other ninth-inning options suffered injuries. Since taking the job, Norris has converted five of his six save opportunities, surrendering just one run in six innings.
